Thank you to CHF for bringing smiles to our kids. Liam loved the books that the Book Bunker volunteers provided this morning.

Hiep, Liam’s mum

We highly value the CHF services and resources for our young child and family during years of hospital stays that has greatly enhanced the quality and experiences away from our interstate home.

Patrick Snr, Patrick’s dad

All the little things the Foundation offers make a huge difference to long stays in hospital. The staff are AMAZING and super caring.

How our supporters help patients and families

We simply couldn’t do what we do without the incredible generosity of our community and partners.

Fundraise for sick kids!

Many families often ask how they can give something back to help other families. Holding a fundraiser is great fun and a wonderful way to get your family, friends and community involved.
Whatever you fancy doing from running a marathon, holding a sausage sizzle to selling raffle tickets or shaving your head! We are here to help and assist you in reaching your goals.
